Our new place has STAIRS and Jace loves them! It took us a few days to get baby gates. Jace spent those days crawling up the stairs over and over and over again. He thought it was hilarious when we would crawl up the stairs to chase after him. Very cute!
Between keeping Jace away from the stairs and keeping him away from the pet food, I couldn’t seem to get much done. We have three floors and I was constantly running up and down and Jace would cry anytime I went to a different floor without him, which meant I only had one had to use for unpacking since he was in my other arm…. Luckily, reinforcements arrived in the form of Grandma! YAY!
Days are very productive now that Cherie is here. Jace spends the day playing with Grandma and I spend the day trying to unpack boxes. The cats are loving all of the extra packaging paper that comes out of the boxes!
Jace is learning to use his sippy cups. He’s teething again so he’s been using the sippy cup with the spout as a teether, but he does understand how to drink if you help him hold it at the right angle. The sippy cups with a straw are a bit more of a mystery so far. We’re working on it. Grandma kept him completely entertained at dinner tonight with drinks from a straw. He was loving it!
It’s been a great week few days. We are really liking our new place. Sleep has been a disaster (I think our longest stretch last night was 40 minutes and most of the stretches of sleep were 20 minutes, tops….), but Jace has still been pretty happy. And he’s so happy Grandma came to visit! (Adam and I are, too!)
